The contract is worth AU$507 million (€330 million) and has been awarded to the consortium between Acciona, WSP and Metro Trains Melbourne, which plans to start the works at the end of this year, although the principal works will begin in 2022. The project will be completed in 2024.
 
The works include removal of the level crossings at Glen Huntly Road and Neerim Road, and construction of the new Glenhuntly station and a pedestrian and cycle lane that will connect Ormond and Caulfield.

Infrastructure project
 
The State of Victoria recently awarded Acciona the contract to upgrade the Hurstbridge railway line, also in Melbourne, as part of a wider infrastructure project worth AU$530 million (€340 million) to remove 75 level crossings in the Melbourne metropolitan area.
 
The works include construction of two new train stations at Greensborough and Montmorency, duplication of three kilometres of railway track between these stations, and 1.5 kilometres of new track between Diamond Creek and Wattle Glen. This project will also upgrade the signalling infrastructure along the entire line.
